Dorset Echo: "‘Does Anyone Know My Old Navy Friend?"


War Hero
"It is now some 52 years since I last saw my best chum in the Royal Navy. His name is Jim Long and I am informed he lives in Weymouth, Dorset.

He recently wrote to my old local paper, the Geelong Advertiser, here in Victoria, Australia looking for me.

I have since moved to Western Australia and it was the action of some dear friends who saw his letter in the ‘Addy’ and alerted me.

My name is Jay Dunning and I now live just east of Perth, Western Australia, and am using your paper to hopefully try and connect with him so Jim, if you see this, please get me on email: [email protected]

A quick skim of cross referenced with Ancestry UK suggests a possibility in an area called Radipole Lane. The gentleman there seems to be around 70-72.
